Tui cathedral, unlike the basilicas of Pontevedra, Ferrol and Vigo, is exactly that (a real cathedral) and Tui can genuinely lay claim to the title of the city. The building was consecrated in 1225 AD during the monarchy of King Alfonso, but building work started over a century earlier.The cathedral really is a monumental structure and its position, on top of a hill at the summit of the town, makes it the emblem of the city.The building is actually a castle cathedral and the walls are adorned with battlements and fortifications, some dating back to the year 1120 AD when building work first commenced. The best view of he Cathedral de Tui is to be had from a spot somewhere close to the banks of the Mino in the valley below. It is from this position that you can get an uninterrupted sightline looking up to the once walled town with the cathedral perched at the top.galiciaguide.com/Tui2.html
